Physiotherapy treatments at The Solihull Physiotherapy Clinic
Physiotherapy includes a wide range of treatments including:
Manipulation and Mobilisations
These treatments vary in terms of the force required and the patients preference. These range from very gentle joint and soft tissue movements and stretching to manipulation. It is always preferable to use as gentle a treatment as possible to treat a soft tissue or joint problem.
Procedures for manually pulling a part of the body to a beneficial effect.using a system of weights and pulleys to gradually change the position of a bone. It may be used in cases of bone injury or congenital defect, to prevent scar tissue from building up in ways to limit movement, and to prevent contractures in disorders such as cerebral palsy or arthritis.
Early and correct treatment of sports injuries is vital for the most effective recovery. Sports injuries are treated to ensure optimal recovery and return to sport as soon as possible. The sports person will be provided with a sport specific rehabilitation program and given advice to prevent re-injury, which may include referral for a podiatric assessment.

Ergonomic and postural advice
Ergonomic advice is invaluable at work and home to help prevent pain caused by repetitive movements, poor seating, desk position and computer alignment. You will also be advised on how to maintain good posture and to avoid aches and pains in the future.
Clinical Pilates used by Physiotherapists is a modification of the traditional Pilates exercises developed by Joseph Pilates over 70 years ago. The emphasis is control of the deep stabilising muscles of the trunk which support the spine. By improving these muscles improved core stability can reduce postural pain and enhance efficiency of movement.
A variety of modalities including ultrasound, interferential and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) machines are available. As an adjunct to other treatment techniques these modalities can help to relieve pain and accelerate the healing process.
